Michael is a PADI Dive Instructor and Josh is a PADI Divemaster. Between the two of them you are in safe hands exploring the underwater world!
Guests interested in diving are required to fill out a medical questionnaire/liability waiver and potentially obtain doctor’s clearance prior to coming down to the Virgin Islands. Additionally, certified divers must send a copy of their diver certification card prior to the trip.
Aeolus offers a complimentary Discover Scuba Dive (Resort Course) to guests that are not certified divers (10 year old minimum age). This includes a ~1 hour safety and theory course along with a ~30 minute shallow water dive.
Certified divers can dive up to three times throughout the charter. Additional dives will be up to the discretion of the Captain based on the itinerary and weather conditions.
Aeolus offers diving education including PADI Open Water and Advanced courses. All E-Learning will need to be completed prior to the charter and we highly recommend completing the confined water sections with a local shop prior to the trip. This allows you to finish out the course with the open water dives and not consume too much of the trip!
All the necessary dive gear is complimentary onboard Aeolus. If you have preferred gear that works for you, we recommend bringing it along! Our vessel uses Scuba Pro Gear including everything necessary for PADI courses as well.
Open Water Referral Course: $400pp
Advanced Open Water Course: $300pp
Additional DSD Dives: $100pp
Payment for diving is preferable as Venmo or Cash to the Instructor.
We recommend getting DAN diver insurance or a comparable policy for your trip.
